Chris Regas' work belongs to time, and some of the pieces in this Dallas-based photographer's retrospective at PDNB Gallery seem even older than their respective dates. The desert landscapes and their dust storms, cantinas with paint-peeling walls, windmills on the distant horizon, and ranchers at work exist in black and white frames that could be from decades ago. We feel an instant and honest connection between Regas and his subjects, but more than that we feel a true dedication to preserving a place and its history.
Regas has been making and exhibiting work nationally and internationally for over 50 years. His work is in the permanent collections of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, the Museum of Art in Tyler and Wichita Falls. Beyond his own work he championed the photographic media in Dallas and early on contributed to the Dallas 3rd Sunday exhibitions near Fairpark. He and others called out for the need of a gallery in Dallas dedicated solely to photography, and these efforts resulted in the founding of Allen Street Gallery.
